‘Fohloza’ Opens Up On SA Offers, Makes Huge PSL Claim

Former AmaZulu and Marumo Gallants coach Romain Folz has revealed he’s had “multiple offers from South Africa” and claimed one day he will return to lift the PSL title.

Folz, 34, became the youngest coach to lead a team in the Premier Soccer League, when he took over at Gallants last season.

But he only lasted six games before leaving, citing interference as the reason. But he wasn’t too long without a job before Usuthu appointed him as replacement for Brandon Truter.

Even though things didn’t work out to plan, Folz has now told iDiski Times in an exclusive interview that he has good memories of Mzansi.

“I love South Africa, the country, the people, it’s a football country with amazing fans,” he stated in edition 135.

“I have a special relationship with the AmaZulu fans, which I still receive positive messages to this day from. Fantastic people and I truly love them.

“Even Chiefs and Pirates fans, for example, I always had great interactions with them. They are amazing.

“To sum up, again, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about South Africa, only good things and when the time is right, I will be back.”

Folz also revealed that he seemingly still has lots of interest from clubs in South Africa, before claiming he will eventually make a triumphant return.

“As always, I am dedicated and focused on my current mission,” he added.

“I will finish my tasks with FIFA and then I’ll evaluate the next steps of my future. I have refused many offers since October, including multiple from South Africa.

“It was not the right time, one thing I can tell you, I will come back to South Africa in the future and win the PSL.”
